I am driven to investigate the thread that connects the symbols and archetypes that define human experience. I contrast my experience with classic motifs and the archetypes of classic stories, to generate a new perspective for my subject matter. By looking at life through a lens outside of time, I can get to the heart of what remains the same throughout civilization. Despite the new era of technology we are living in, we are faced with the same desire to live a life with purpose. Through these juxtapositions, I hope to express the dominance of nature over human innovation, and remind people of our ephemeral relationship with the natural world.
